Hello Chian,
Your Australian Magpie reminds me a lot of the Pied Crows I saw while in Tanzania. Beautiful bold black and white markings contrast nicely against the bright green grass. To capture it with a mouse in its beak is a real bonus.

Fairly good picture of this Magpie with the kill, Chian.
The bird is almost black; wish you could capture its eye clearly.
